Alejandrina 'Ali' Ramos (32, teacher) and Liam West (36, lawyer) celebrated their wedding with an intimate ceremony followed by a rustic barn reception at Bluefield Farm in Blauvelt, a family friend's flower farm. The couple used a cheery color scheme ?of green and blue inspired by the day's blooms, all of which were grown right there on the property. From Ali's knee-length gown to her fresh-picked bouquet and the s'mores roast at the reception, every aspect of their wedding felt relaxed and totally "them."

"We met at a hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurant and bonded over hot sauce and a shared sense of humor," says Ali.
All of the day's flowers—including Ali's pink rose and thistle bouquet— were all grown on the farm and lovingly arranged by their friends and family.
